Snowstorm (and WARM here Friday)October 2nd, 2013 at 10:53 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
These are the Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3 probabilities of an inch or more of snow from the NWS Weather Prediction Center. We have a snowstorm brewing. Winter Storm Watches are up for portions of five states. Over a foot of snow may fall in the mountains of Wyoming. It may be cold enough for significant snow in parts of the Dakotas and NW Minnesota. The last storm we had in late September gave heavy rain and strong winds to much of the Pacific Northwest.
In the meantime, nice and sunny in Michigan, with clouds down in Indiana and off to our west. We’ll be in the warm 70s today with light winds. Clouds will increase tonight with a chance of showers or an isolated t-shower after midnight (better chance of rain tonight as you go south. The morning NAM (Caribou would have a chance of rain in G.R. after about 2 am). That model gives G.R. highs of 74 or 75 tomorrow with a chance of showers, 83 on Friday (!) and mid 70s on Saturday with the cool front holding off until late in the day.
